(Closed) Airbrush trial today: which eye-shadow color theme?

posted 10 years ago in Beauty
  • poll: Which eye shadow do you like better? Airbrush foundation good/look flawless/real?

    Go with the natural colored one!

    Go with the softened pewter look!

    She did a great job the airbrush foundation looks amazingly flawless!

    She did not do a good job! It looks horrible, find someone else!!

    She did okay, but could have made your skin look even more flawless

    She did okay, but doesn't look natural with your skin.

    Seems like she's good, but I can't tell without it completely finished & with 2 different eye colors

    I dont like either the natural look or pewter color look, go with a different one.

    Go with the purples your bridal party are using.

    I like the purples/mauve colors but the only part I don’t like it how it looks like it’s highlighted up to your eyebrow (maybe she just used something with a lot of shine to it). Definitely think beige/browns/warm tones would look more natural but still very nice.

    Your skin looks awesome though! I don’t think it looks like you have too much foundation (some people might think that because it’s just a pic – you’ll look less “flat” or matte in real life).

    @zippylef: I agree with Zippy. Understated is beautiful. Frosty is overwhelming and distracting of your natural beauty.

    I personally don’t care for either eye makeup look; it’s way too frosty. As other posters have suggested, something with an earth tone (not a white frost) would be much more flattering. 

    The foundation does look flawless, but it almost looks too good; like someone Photoshopped a picture. 

    Overall, I think you’re too pretty to be wearing that much makeup; I don’t think you need to be airbrushed!

    i think that whatever makes YOU feel comfortable, you should do! you don’t want to feel uncomfortable or less than confident on your wedding day.

    i personally don’t love either of them the way they are designed here; although i think if the colors did not extend up to your browbone and under your eyebrow, these colors would work very well. a little frosty shimmer goes a long way, and i think your makeup artist might have taken it a bit too far.

    I think you look great in the pic of you tan. In my honest opinion I agree with a lot of the other comments that your eye makeup is way, way too dark and frosty at the same time. The lip color is too pink. At first I didn’t even think you needed to be tan, but I see what you mean about your skin color in the pic where you are more tan. If you are going to keep your hair blonde I’d go with more earthy tones and maybe a sun kissed glow look of browns, coopers, and golds. Then go with maybe a richer color lip. I think the rule is if you go really dark and heavy on eye makeup then you should go with a more neutral lip, but if you go heavier on the lip (say a red or dark color) then go lighter on the eyes. I think a lighter lip would be better. Can you get another makeup trial closer to the wedding when you are tanner? Then she might be able to tell better what color is good for you. I think the airbrush did make your face look very clear and balanced which is beautiful. On your wedding you want to be very natural and don’t pick something that could date you in a few years…same goes with your hair. By the way, just a thought, with your skin color and beautiful blue eyes, you’d look great as a brunette…just somehting to think about! Good luck!

    @MacFaniam24: you would absolutely kick it with brunette hair.

    Heres the look im going for with the eye shadow. Ignore that the foundation doesnt match. That was one of the fopars of my makeup trial. But other than that it was successful. I really think you should go darker rather than lighter… As ive said before.

    Also google is an awseome thing, pick a celebrity that is close to your skin tone and look and google them. Most likely you might be able to find something you love.. 😀

    i also think that the eyeshadow is too much… but my fav of them is the pewter(probably because it is the lease dramatic)

    I’m going to be honest and echo some of the PPs. It just looks really fake, and I don’t like it at all.  The foundation looks GREAT, but the eyes and lips are WAY off. I’m blonde with blue eyes, and I stick to brown/beige eyeshadows, and I can pull of pink lips, but I usually go for a more natural color (more on the reddish side).

    Hi I think that you are beautiful and would look better with a natural-color eye and mouth.

    From a photographer’s standpoint – RUN AWAY FROM SHIMMER!! It is going to look garish and waaaay overdone in your wedding photos. You can go for a beautiful smokey eye and still have a “pop” and some drama without looking like tinkerbell on film. Foundation is amazing though.

    I’m going to to echo the sentiments to stay away from the frosted shadow and lip look.

    I think she did a good job with the foundation.  BUT it looks to me like maybe she skipped or maybe just barely applied any blush, bronzer and highlighter.  Part of her job is to contour your face to bring out your best features.
